RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Hyperbaric oxygen may increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy. Combining hyperbaric oxygen with radiation therapy may be an effective treatment for glioblastoma multiforme. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of combining radiation therapy with hyperbaric oxygen in treating patients who have newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. Isotretinoin may help chemotherapy work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drugs. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Carboplatin may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not ye...
Each year a large number of patients are hospitalized at Shock Trauma Centers with severe head injuries. Bleeding into and swelling of these patients' brains may cause compression of vital structures, disability and death. Sometimes surgery is needed. Unfortunately, the investigators have no medication to treat the bad effects of head trauma. Part of the brain damage is due to toxic chemicals (including one called glutamate) that are released by the damaged nerves. Dexanabinol ...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs such as gadolinium texaphyrin may make the tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of radiation therapy and gadolinium texaphyrin in treating patients who have supratentorial glioblastoma multiforme.
Oligometastatic patients with inoperable thoracic nodes metastases from any primary, except for hematologic malignancies, will undergo a risk adaptive scheme of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT).
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an essential omega-3 fish oil. DHA is critical to the structure and function of brain cells. DHA fish oil has been shown to be beneficial in cognition in several animal studies; however, this effect in human studies is not clear. It is not known how much dietary fish oil can get into the human brain. Thus, exploring fish oil delivery in human brains is critical for designing appropriate interventions.
This project, will combine the data collected from existing and innovative technologies: fMRI scans, mapping brain connectivity using EEG in combination with eye-tracking technology (the BNA technology developed by ELMINDA), characterizing of cortical layers using magnetic resonance (the CoLI technology developed by Tel-Aviv University), and DTI imaging (imaging of brain tracks). To do so, Sheba's Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, joined the project and is responsible for recruitin...
The goal of this study is to establish the feasibility of an intervention designed to improve memory in patients who have experienced a moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (m-sTBI) and to examine its effect on brain structures.
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as gefitinib may interfere with the growth of the tumor cells and slow the growth of the tumor. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Combining gefitinib with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of combining gefitinib with radiation therapy in treating patients who have glioblastoma multiforme.
The investigators will determine if the MRI can be used to determine the temperature inside the brain. This is an important piece of information now that cooling the brain is being used to decrease brain damage in infants who had a decrease in brain oxygen or flow around the time of birth.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate Brain MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and Brain CT (Computed Tomography) Angiogram data in subjects who participate in the "Hyperbaric Oxygen for Chronic Stable Brain Injury" (HYBOBI) study. Including information from MRI and CT studies provide information about whether hyperbaric oxygen improves brain function in subjects who have had a brain injury. Subjects will complete MR and CT scans twice during the study. The first MR and CT wi...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Motexafin gadolinium may increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy by making tumor cells more sensitive to radiation. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of motexafin gadolinium plus radiation therapy in treating patients who have newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Combining chemotherapy with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of radiation therapy with or without chemotherapy in treating patients who have anaplastic oligodendroglioma.
The first aim of this study is to investigate the frequency and severity of a specific pathological metabolic pattern, mitochondrial dysfunction, of the brain in comatose patients under neurocritical care. This pattern is recognized as a complication after compromised blood flow to the brain and may be amenable to treatment. The other main aim of this study is to correlate patterns of metabolites between brain and jugular venous blood. It is probable but not proven that jugular...
This study will compare pain (primary end-point) and local metastatic tumor control (secondary end-point) after dose-intensified image-guided fractionated stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for painful mass-type spinal metastases versus conventional radiation therapy.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the modulatory effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on functional connectivity with the insula. Functional connectivity (FC) measures the interaction between brain regions, and recent neuroimaging studies have used FC to investigate how addiction affects FC among pertinent brain regions. rTMS, which can excite cortical neurons, has shown promise as a method to manipulate brain connectivity and could be used t...
Glioblastomas, the most frequent malignant brain tumor in adults, are widespread in the brain, despite their discrete appearance on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). While this tumor tends to spread widely in the brain, unlike other tumors of the body, it rarely metastasizes, or spreads, to other organs. Approximately 10 percent of patients with glioblastoma develop metastatic disease after radiation or brain surgery. In the absence of radiation o...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving temozolomide together with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving temozolomide together with radiation therapy works in treating patients with low-grade gliomas.
Evaluation of the impact (on survival and other outcomes) of implementing the Brain Trauma Foundation/National Association of EMS Physicians Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) guidelines in the prehospital EMS systems throughout the state of Arizona.
Brain bleed in premature infants damages the brain and survivors suffer from cerebral palsy (weakness in the extremities), cognitive deficits, and neurobehavioral disorders. In this clinical trial, investigators will test whether thyroxine (hormone from thyroid gland) treatment in premature infants with moderate-to-large brain bleeds show recovery in the brain structure on MRI evaluation at the time of discharge (36 weeks) and neurodevelopmental improvement at 2 years of age.
In previous studies exploring specific sequences of MRI (susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) and arterial spin labeling (ASL)), the investigators have shown the great sensibility of these MRI sequences to detect arteriovenous shunts, compared to angiography imaging (static or dynamic). This prospective study aims to compare multisequence MRI to brain arteriography imaging in patients undergoing brain arteriovenous malformations embolization.
Alzheimer's disease is a medical illness that damages the brain and causes problems with memory, mood and behavior. A substance called acetylcholine (ACh), which is naturally produced in the body, plays an important role in the normal functioning of the brain. In subjects with Alzheimer's disease, the level of ACh is greatly reduced. Currently, there are three commonly prescribed drugs used for treating the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease by helping to maintain the level of ACh...
There is currently a shortage of organ in France, for patients with chronic diseases who are on the waiting list for an organ. The first source of organ donor in France is patients with brain death. 58% of patients in brain death are patients with a severe stroke ( ischemic or hemorrhagic). In order to identify which patient with a severe stroke and with unfavorable prognosis who can evolve to brain death, we have conducted a retrospective study in Lorrain, in France, and we ha...
